On Tuesday, tech giant, Apple unveiled a new low-cost iPhone SE during a prerecorded announcement it streamed online. It is one of a handful of new updates the firm released. The new low-cost iPhone SE will be integrated with 5G and A15 Bionic chip for a cost of $429. The company also launched a new iPad Air, Mac Studio desktop computer, and a new 27-inch monitor.
Apple’s New Low-Cost iPhone SE Has a Price Tag of $429
Furthermore, as a follow-up to 2020’s excellent budget iPhone, the new SE operates similarly to its predecessor. It basically packs some iPhone 13 tech into an iPhone 8’s body, complete with a standard home button. The new low-cost iPhone SE launches on March 18 for $429, which is a bump up from the $399 price of the previous SE and comes in three colors: Midnight, Starlight, and Product Red with the support of 5G and A15 Bionic chip.
Like the previous low-cost iPhone SE, it’s got a 4.7-inch display, the same as the old iPhone 8. While the 2020 model had an A13 chip fueling its performance, the new low-cost iPhone SE has a more advanced A15 Bionic chip inside. This new development will provide faster performance and access to some of the features you see on iPhone flagships, like better battery life and improved performance in mobile games. Unlike the 2020 SE, this new one also supports 5G networks.
The New Apple Phone Will Have Downgraded Camera Options
Aside from size and shape, the primary way the new low-cost iPhone SE is a downgrade from more expensive iPhones is its camera. Users won’t get three lenses with every fancy feature here, but what’s on offer should still take nice shots for social media. Its 12MP lens comes with software enhancements like Smart HDR that should make photos look striking without a billion lenses.
